Is this inside a browser window?

If it is, go to your addons and disable the vlc plugin.

I am so disappointed in ICEFILMS. It USED to be a really great site. Now it is pure garbage. At first I thought it was my lousy 3.0 mbps internet, but now that I have 30 mbps, it's the same old shit. The VLC player is HORRIBLE. It stops and freezes no matter my speed. One of the BEST features about watching the videos is now gone (the buffer thingy in the right corner). I literally spend 30 minutes looking for a proper link to stream from. Please go back to the way things were.

The solution is don't use vlc directly. download the file and play it as it's downloading.

That, or use the divx/flash player. Your choice.

I did not have to download the files at first. What a bummer. I have no problem watching shows and movies on file hosting sites like letmewatchthis or watchseries, or other boards competing against Ice. It's that damn VLC. I don't know why because my laptop is not that old and my connection is top notch.

I have divx web player but it does not give me divx as an option. When it does, it, too, goes slow.

Unfortunately, VLC has a shitty cache and only downloads what it thinks it can use at any given time. You could try upping the settings, but it didn't work for me either, so I use other methods, like playing the .part file instead.

The divx/flash player seems to work well enough for me for SD stuff... I just pause it for a bit and let it get ahead.

The major issue is bandwidth, not yours, but how much the hosts have and are using. All you can really do is register for a free account, then whine like hell at them to up the bandwidth. (I do it lots.. it works!)

As for the other sites, I guess they just aren't as popular and their files/hosts don't have the bandwidth issues.

Something you might want to try is an alternate player to vlc, I recall someone suggesting a few for people to try, but don't remember which ones they were atm. A quick search on the forums should get you the info if you want it.

Thank you. I really appreciate it. Now I understand. But yes, Ice needs to add more alternative links cause there are plenty that work without having to search 30 minutes for one that does on the mainsite.
